Easter 1916 Centenary

We headed into town yesterday to catch the Defence and Emergency Services parade to commemorate the 1916 Rising. I got these shots from Dorset Street Upper where, unlike O'Connell Street, spectators were not very numerous and I was able to get a good spot right on the railings.

I used the Canon 100-400mm lens -  I love to use it get in tight for portraits at events such as this. As I was shooting for just for fun, I was messing around with a few new tricks like Auto ISO and back button focussing. It was my first time properly trying Auto ISO and to be honest I wasn't happy with it. I thought it would be good because people were going in and out of shade as they passed buildings. However, I felt the ISO's were shooting up to values like 3200 unnecessarily. In future, I'll have to decide if I want to tweak the limits or just set ISO myself as I am used to doing. As for back button focussing, I missed quite a few shots because I'm so used to focussing with the shutter button - I think I need to practice a bit more before I make up my mind on.

Here's the first shot - it was taken afterwards at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square. The fill gallery is on Facebook and high resolution shots are available to download free of charge here
